He’s at it again

Think about it. Why on earth should children get tooth decay (see addendum)? Stephan thinks he knows.

Weston price was a dentist and scientist in the early part of the 20th century. Practicing dentistry in Cleveland, he was amazed at the poor state of his patients' teeth and the suffering it inflicted. At the time, dental health was even worse than it is today, with some children in their teens already being fitted for dentures. Being a religious man, he could not bring himself to believe that 'physical degeneration' was what God intended for mankind. He traveled throughout the world looking for cultures that did not have crooked teeth or dental decay, and that also exhibited general health and well-being. And he found them. A lot of them.

    Yea, I still brush, but it's more for the fresh feeling. I don't floss, but I do use wooden toothpicks to dislodge food between teeth and to massage the gum line. I consider the use of the toothpick as primary to brushing for hygiene.
